Owner Story

Things to know about us. Will and I were both born and raised in Charleston, SC. Will graduated from VMI and I graduated from SMU. More importantly, we love to surf and travel. After graduating college we moved to Australia and worked for a year. During that year we surfed a lot, converted our VW into a camper van and traveled Australia. Upon expiration of our visas we sold our van and used the money to travel through Indonesia where we surfed some of the best waves we’ve ever experienced. These travel experiences are what inspired us to also own an Airbnb and help people to enjoy their stays to the fullest potential. We formed some of the best relationships staying in Airbnb’s and meeting people from all over the world. We now live full time in Charleston and get away when possible. We primarily work in real estate, so if you have any questions or interests in the area we can offer our help.

The Southern Shangri-La was the perfect stay in Charleston. The apartment was super cute and clean, and the location was great. We were walking distance to all the shops and restaurants on King Street and just quick 15-20 minute drive to the beaches at Isle of Palm and Sullivan's Island. I highly recommend this place for anyone visiting Charleston!
